Whew! Fluffing, fluffing and more fluffing! I'm tired of fluffing! This is what I've been doing most of the afternoon/evening.
First, our family Christmas tree. This beautiful 7.5' Mixed Colorado Long Needle tree will have a prominent place in our home as it will be decked out in all the family heirloom treasures and precious handmade ornaments from the kids.
The next tree is a 7' Mini Canadian Pine tree. This is my 3rd Christmas tree to put up this year. It's reserved for my snowmen only! I'm not much on Santa, so I tend to buy more "snowmen-oriented" items.
Lastly, this is something new for my home. I've always wanted to wrap garland around my staircase, but have never found what I wanted. Well, last year I got fortunate again at the Hobby Lobby after Christmas sale! I bought four garlands at 80% off. They were $24.99 each! On top of that, I was able to use my 15% off employee discount! So you can imagine how happy I am! =] But goodness sakes, what a bear it was to work with. It didn't want to bend very easily. I'm satisfied with the way it turned out.
I'm thinking about buying strands of battery operated lights to intertwine in the garland. I'm not quite sure yet. Hmmm...
Well, not much Christmas decorating was accomplished today. Just lots and lots of fluffing. At least that part is over with for right now. I still have 2 little trees to put up. My family loves to joke about all the Christmas trees in our home, but deep down I just know they love it almost as much as me! I'm grateful they put up with me! =]
